specifically and luke more subtly claimed that she is a virgin. mark says nothing. and john says nothing about it. and the reason that both matthew and luke introduced that particular aspect or they have a tradition that states that about mary is because they're reading the jewish biblen greek. >> the jewishible in greek. what was the language that the -- that was translated, the original language? jesus spoke in aramaic, correct? >> probably. >> and that was first translated into hrew? >> the jewish bible is, for the most part, in hebre there are a few parts in amaic. >> then it was translated into greek for the common man. >> for the greek-saking common jew in minus 200. >> ok. now, it's your contention, is it not, that when the translation occurred between hebrew and greek there was a mistake made. what was the mistake? >> you know, that's augustine's contention too, i'm in good company. >> you meanaint? >> yes. yes. >> of hippo? >> yes, one of my favorites. this is something that greek-speaking christians were aware of as early as 150. >> what is the word in question? >> the word -- it's l

rights. more from the bbc's john in gaza city. it's a pretty long list of atrocities and failings, isn't it? >> some pretty strong language, david from human rights watch saying the criminal justice system in gaza wreaks of injustice. widespread systematic torture even saying three prisoners were executed on the basis of confessions extracted through torture. i've been speaking to one young man who is a supporter of hamas' rivals, fatah, and he has been arrested many times in recent years and we have obviously concealed his identity but i've been asking him what happened to him while he was being detained. >> conditions of detention were more than bad. i was subjected to torture, beatings and humiliation. i was not allowed to bathe for a few days. they put a stinky bag over my head and the beatings and humiliation continued for several days. once they stripped my leg and burned my foot with a cigarette lighter. >> john, this isn't the first time these allegations or those allegations the victim made have been made. what's being made of all this? >> well, hamas has been more open to cri

of the president to be able to cast a ballot. so you have people like congressman john lewis, longtime civil rights leader, who are saying this is the civil rights battle of our time now. the same fight we had in 1965, the same marchers when john lewis was beaten in alabama, this is occurring today. it is a different discussion now than it was back then, but nonetheless, the urgency to defend their right to vote is there and the black community. i would argue in the hispanic community and on college campuses, like it was in some sense during the civil rights era. it took a long time to get people to pay attention to this issue. this is something when i wrote about in september, 2011, and not allow people were covering. i think people are now more aware of this issue. you've seen the court strike down a lot of these laws for violating the voting rights act or violating the first amendment or violating other parts of the constitution, right to vote provisions of state constitutions. it is a wake-up call. it is motivated people in ways that perhaps could backfire against republicans, because in some s

but not stellar. in half the descriptions, the applicant was named john, the other half, jennifer. on a scale of 1 to 7, with 7 being highest, professors gave john an average score of 4 for competence but gave jenifer a 3.3. john was also seen more favorably as someone they might hire and offer a higher salary. the study found female professors to be just as biased against women. >> so after 20-30 years of pushing to get to advance women and women making advancements in college education, in even doctors biology, chemistry, education. you're still seeing this bias in the sciences. are we ever going to overcome it? >> interestingly enough it turns out at yale, they have some of the higher numbers for women in the stem program. 39-46% of their women or of their students in that program are female and i think last year they had around 40 something percent graduation rate where the national average is 38%. what bothers or concerns me with this is some of this is still unfortunately, biased and prejudices. both from men and women. and that's really human nature and how do we get beyond that? because i

john kerry was not the right guy to play mitt romney, anything like that? >> no, because, you know, i don't know how you can say that, because in a way, mitt romney and john kerry are very formal people, they are obviously well educated people with a kind of refinement about them, they aren't sloppy in any way, obnoxious in any way, they use firm language but both basically strong people, in the accomplishment, it was probably a very good pick but the romney that came in last night i would say you were right a couple of minutes ago, that romney was not predictable, he came in so strong and so in charge that he basically took over the room and i felt he was sufficient on that stage meaning the president didn't need to be on there for romney to put on the show or jim lehrer, it was romney control of that space and physical control of that space which was so dominant, i don't think we have seen anything like it before. >> rose:. >> in probably a presidential debate. >> rose: i also heard this was not a new romney in the context of have i seen him before. >> yes, mike barnicle saw him i

is going to go ahead. john explain to us how the deal works. >> they have financed and supported that group for many years and the companies are close, but they trade at an arm's length distance. in reality there is a lot that goes on between these companies. they are pulling the mining expertise in to say that there is more money to be made in mining at this point in time and even more to be made by trading commodities. >> talking about the future there was promising. one thing to mention is how happy they have been with the arrangement, there have been many arguments about who will be maintaining what. a good combination, these companies together. >> that you very much. in russia, the appeal hearing for the members of a punk rock group, was a riot, has been adjourned. they were sentenced to two years in prison for singing a song that mocked vladimir putin. they say they doubt their conviction will be overturned because the case is part of a wider crackdown on critics of the russian president. fiercely contested parliamentary elections in georgia, there has already been in -- already been
